Across Globeducate schools university counselling is a key part of the learning experience and students at the end of their secondary education will be able to take advantage of exclusive access to all programmes offered by these two elite higher education institutions located in Switzerland, Spain and the UK.
The Bachelor of Business Administration in Hospitality Management programme will be offered with special tuition and access for Globeducate students; this new step strengthens the relationship between these two leading education groups.
